Can CCS/CCU contribute substantially to reach “net zero”?


Current Situation and Ongoing Projects on Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS) and Carbon Capture and Use (CCU) in Germany and Japan

As many other countries, Japan as well as the EU and Germany have committed to decarbonize their economies and reach “net zero” GHG emissions by 2050 the latest and 2045 respectively. While the goal is clear, the pathway towards net zero is yet to be defined. The need for the use of carbon capture and storage and use (CCS/ CCU) in order to deal with remaining CO2 emissions is controversially discussed. The IPCC assumes that remaining CO2 emissions cannot be absorbed by natural sinks (forests, peatlands, etc.) only and that especially in the second half of this century, CCS/CCU technologies and other Negative Emission Technologies (NET) will have to be used to a greater or lesser extent.

The webinar on January 26th, 2022 will provide general information on the economic aspects, utilization potentials, GHG mitigation contribution, and environmental risks of CCS & CCU as well as highlight the specific political strategies, regulatory environment and ongoing projects in Germany and Japan.
